Is that the busload of nurses you were waiting for. Fuck me, I hope you weren't waiting too long for those horror stories...

Out of curiousity, was it only ever Rinteln the bus was supposed to be coming from? Only I'm not surprised it never turned up, in the year I was there I never saw a bus and you'd have had to go down to the rugby club and drag the nurses out of there if it had!Actually, thinking about it, the only time during my service there was ever a bus to any dos was when I was basic, our Naafi bops were far too good to be bothered going anywhere else! But I suspect you already know that....

You lot do realise the Rinteln bus was re-roled as the Arrse Outrage bus, don't you? Why else do you think it's always full to bursting when it sets off, and yet - mysteriously - never actually arrives anywhere...

Contrary to popular belief, there were more than just one bus-load of nurses. Wroughton, Halton and Ely all had their respective transports (that never turned up), and it was rumoured that Wegberg also had one on standby. I only ever encountered one bus-load of nurses. Unfortunately, it was empty - unlike my (permanently-filled) sacks. Don't even mention Rhinedhalen. There was more chance of seeing a yeti on a unicycle than the mythical bus-load of yank nurses.

"No, lads, don't go down town and drink in the Eisbar with all the local totty. Spend the night here in our grotty reggie bar; we've got the Black Panther disco, and that busload of nurses from Rinteln is going to turn up this time."

Mmmm.

The only bus load of nurses I ever saw, was at Norton Manor Camp 1981 when there was a flu epidemic! No one was well enough to speak let a lone try and tackle a pissed off QA!

I suppose those cock-starved (tongue in cheek) nurses at Rinteln were also always told that "a bus load of squaddies is on its way".

Hat, Bed-pan etc

I can truthfully say that as the organiser of an all-ranks company smoker in Catterick in 91-ish, the minibus full of nurses did turn up. Not only did I score with an only slightly minging redhead, but one of the toms had his bedroom antics filmed by his oppo (shown en masse to the coy the next day).
